Here’s a handy classroom storage tip. Collect empty, plastic tennis ball or Pringles canisters. (A local fitness or tennis club is a good source for rounding up the tennis ball canisters.) Wrap the containers in colorful contact paper or laminated construction paper. Add decorations with permanent marker or stickers. Use the containers to store chalk, pencils, art supplies or manipulatives. Students can even store their school supplies in a canister as an alternative to a pencil box. The canisters are durable, take up very little storage space and slide into cubbies and shelves easily.
